A letter confirming your status as a student can be downloaded from the Student section of Self Service Banner. This can be used to prove your student status for eligibility to student benefits (e.g. student gym memberships, travel cards, etc.). Please note that there is a separate letter available for the purpose of applying for a council tax exemption.
We can provide academic transcripts for the majority of taught programmes from UWS and from its predecessor institutions (University of Paisley; Bell College of Technology; and Paisley College of Technology). Transcripts which relate to study undertaken prior to 1992 have to be compiled manually, and may contain less detail than those relating to more recent programmes of study.
Transcripts can be requested in person at the Hub or Student Link on your campus.
Alternatively, you can complete an Academic Transcript Application Form, and email this to Student Administration on your campus (the email addresses are on the form).
We aim to provide the transcript within 5 working days after receipt of the application form, although transcripts relating to study prior to 1992 which have to be prepared manually may take longer.
Please note that at certain times of the year, especially during graduation and enrolment periods, the production of transcripts may take longer due to the large number of requests received at these times.
Current students should collect their transcripts from the Hub at Paisley, or the Student Link at Ayr, Dumfries or Hamilton campus. In exceptional circumstances, current students can request that their transcript be posted to them.
Transcripts for former students will generally be posted, unless you request to collect the transcript from the Hub or Student Link.
There is no charge for the production of an academic transcript or for postage by second class postage to a UK address or by international standard airmail postage to addresses outwith the UK.
If you require the transcript to be posted via alternative postal services, you may be asked to pay any additional cost incurred.
